of it anyways. number one, ayman al zawahiri, the long-time number two to osama bin laden, communicating with an organization that's considered even more danger, nasir al wahsyshi. he's experimented with exploding clothes, clothes impregnanted with explosives, not to hide bombs but clothes that are bombs. but this isn't about an exploding shirt. this is said to be, according to sources that talked to nbc news, something big, that the head of al qaeda ordered to do something at the end of ramadan and that's now. when they talked about that, larry, the u.s. government listened and that's what kicked off the biggest alert since 9/11. >> steve handelsman over the weekend, congressman peter king, very knowledgeable guy, he said they picked up specific dates, specific dates. do we know anything about that? >> reporter: what we're told, larry, is that the conversation, and it may have just been one, it's such big guys and they so avoid communicating and if there was just one conversation it's because of they communicated and because of who they were. and the communication we're told specified t
thing as he did the night osama bin laden was (horn, ding, ding) how long have i had my car insurance? i don't know, eight, ten years. i uldn't tell ya' but things were a lot less expeive back then. if you're 50 or over you should take a new look at your auto insurance. you may be overpaying. actually that makes a lot of sense. old policy. old rates. and thanks to your experience behind the wheel, you might save $350 by switching to the aarp auto insurance program from the hartford. plus, you'll get benefits that reward your driving record, like our promise that you won't be dropped. wait, you won't drop me, seriously? that's right, you won't be dropped. and, if you know anyone who's been dropped by their insurance company, you know that's a hassle you don't need. especially theseays. plus you'll get recovercare, which helps you pay for everyday needs like housecleaning, lawn care and pet services if you're injured in an accident. so my auto insurance is going to help pay the houcleaning if i'm injured? did you say lawn care? and if can't walk my dog they'll help me pay someone to do it
reach. >> thanks to air force personnel who did their part. osama bin laden is no longer a threat to our country. we put al qaeda on the path to defeat. >> osama bin laden is dead and general motors is alive. >> al qaeda's on a path to defeat and osama bin laden's dead. al qaeda's on the path to defeat and osama bin laden is dead. >> we have eliminated osama bin laden. that was our purpose. >> they ran on that, and they ran on saving detroit. listen to this. >> when my opponents and others were arguing we should let detroit go bankrupt. we made a bet on american workers and the ingenuity of american companies and our auto industry is back on top. >> we refused to throw in the towel and do nothing. we refused to let detroit go bankrupt. three years later, that bet is paying off in a big way. >> dana, detroit is bankrupt and al qaeda seems to have us on the run. your reaction? >> well, sean, i have friends who live in detroit, and they would say that detroit, for all of the promises that this administration made about that city, not a single one of them was delivered. where it concerns al
al qaeda, we decimated the top leadership and we killed osama bin laden and the main number two or number three leaders. i don't think anything he said was inaccurate. the reality is al qaeda has been reconstituted in different satellite organizations across the region. so we have al qaeda in libya, for example. al qaeda in the sudan, for example. so it's not just the old al qaeda in afghanistan or iraq. al qaeda is taking different forms and shapes and that's the reality that the state department -- >> repeat my question. he said we decimated al qaeda, okay? he said they were not the threat that they once were, however you wish to paraphrase it. our clips were pretty specific. have they now, thankfully, changed their position about the al qaeda threat? is that what you hear about this announcement? >> no. this is an administration that's been ever vigilant in fighting the threat since they came in office. they were focused about getting osama bin laden from the beginning and they've been executing drone strikes at a rate faster than the bush administration and by the way, that'
of going after al qaeda directly. i don't think the administration that got osama bin laden, rhetorical bluster didn't bring oun osama bin laden, actual intelligence and aggressive maneuvers ron insana side of pakistan did. i don't think the former dictators in libya or in egypt would think that this president has been weak. i think what we've seen is a president who has tried to get the united states to conform and comport with the sort of moral standing that -- >> i don't think -- now i feel i need to counter on the other side, becae the fact of the matter is barack obama has adopted policies that i think have actually been less targeted. he will fire drones into countries where we aren't even at war. when we had a plan, a policy, a program that would allow us to go and snatch terrorists out like khalid sheikh mohammed. bring them out without killing their 4-year-old daughters, without killing their grandmothers, without killing everybody in the general vicinity. and i've got to say, nothing that he has done has made us comport to international standards more than under george w. bush
succeeded osama bin laden zawahiri. the two men reportedly agreed that they wanted to do something big. timed to the end of the muslim holy month of ramadan which is right now. and that's what led the united states to close 19 embassies. there they are on the map and consulates in the mideast and africa. there's still a lot that remains unknown including which target. over the weekend, one thing clear from every lawmaker and official with knowledge of the attack, nobody's crying wolf here. this is one of the most serious threats in years. >> been an awful lot of hatter out there, chatter means conversations among terrorists about the planning that's going on, very reminiscent of what we saw pre-9/11. this is the most serious threat that i've seen in the last several years. >> we need to know and realize we're living in an increasingly dangerous world and this many specific threat that we've been briefed on over and over again has reached a new level. >> i must say this is probably one of the most specific incredible threats i've seen perhaps since 9/11 because of the specificity, becau
time they did this, when romney called him an apiecer, obama came out and said tell that to osama bin laden and the 15 leaders of al qaeda i've taken off the field. the notion that this guy is somehow appeasing our enemies is so preposterous. >> do you think they have polled on this, the neocons, they figure after the embarrassment of iraq, they wanted to fight the war. george w. wanted to fight it, and the vice president wanted to fight it. they all wanted to fight it. okay. they decided that we have sort of forgotten that, and now they're coming back. bolton is back, kristol is back. when they say retaliation, their idea of retaliation after 9/11, steve, was going into iraq. retaluation. what does that mean? >> i have never gotten the impression that their world views were radically altered by what happened in the last decade, after the invasion of iraq. i don't think the world view was changed. i think they sense an opportunity within the republican party, the argument in the republican party over foreign policy. whenever they see an opportunity to connect their agenda to oppositio
, just a year ago, boasting, al qaeda is on the run, osama bin laden is dead, and now an unprecedented closure. >> it's ab -- a giant win-win for them. i told you we should be doing spying like bush and cheney said, and i told you al qaeda is weak. the flip side is, it's obama, all he ever does is set himself up to get hiss a kicked by fox news, by trying to appease them. that's five years straight we have seen that play back over and over again. >> yeah, and the crazy part is, i love how they continually say obama is weak on terrorism, when he just continues the exact same policies of the bush administration. but as you said, like obama will try to appease them, and it will never work. they will always spin it. >> yeah, there's no winning with fox news. go ahead. tommy. >> it's what bush did only better. obama actually rained hell fire down on terrorists. people in this country need to take a look at fox and say you know what, these guys need to shut the fox up. because i remember when they were complaining that he was killing too many terrorists. so just shut the hell up. we would be
said about the state of al qaeda the last year. take a look. >> today, al qaeda is on the run and osama bin laden is dead. >> for al qaeda is a shell of its former self. groups must be dealt with. >> the united states is never going to retreat from the world. >> we don't get terrorized. >> senator, a moment ago, you said al qaeda is on the rise. you are not subjecting that al qaeda is stronger than it was pre9/11. >> i'm saying they me taft sized in a way they may pose threat threats throughout the middle east, they can destabilize missions, have acts of terror literally everywhere and there the perception throughout the mid aefeasdle east that there i policy and that there is accommodation it that reality. when they believe that, then you are going to see extremist element on the rise and clearly they are throughout the middle east. action of closing embassies shows they are mounting threats everywhere in the middle east against the united states of america and they are playing in ways that is going to pose challenge to the united states for years to come. >> you talked earlier about r
lives and others, but it's a terrible thing. just a year ago, boasting, al-qaeda's on the run and osama bin laden is dead and now, an unprecedented closure of 22. >> i'm not questioning what he's doing. i think what bill is saying is true. is our attempt to placate part of the world, reset to whether it's russia or somewhere else are clearly not working and the perception of weakness in this administration is encouraging this kind of behavior. >> they really are not working and the problem, i don't know, i look at this and you talk to the countersbel where she knows people and they say there was no reason to close 30 something embassies in madagascar of all places, where there isn't any jihadists. >> stayed open and had another benghazi, who would be criticizing the administration? >> but you don't run. his policy is run and hide. >> and john, let me go to you on this because when you talk about our foreign policy and where we go from here, there's a lot of pressure to focus on our switch to asia, but instead when we focus on the middle east, it's the one area where it's kind of quiet.

. that is more grief than osama bin laden? i don't think so, rush. coming up. why the north carolina governor thinks he can give cookies to his opponents after lying to them in the campaign and signing a new very restrictive abortion law. the governor crossed the street, carrying a plate of cookies and reportedly told a woman "these are for you, god bless you." protesters placed the plate of cookies back at the mansion gates with a note reading governor mccrory, we'll take women's health over cookies. protesters say governor mccrory is breaking a promise he clearly made on the campaign trail last year. >> this past year, state lawmakers passed the women's right to no act, adding legislation making it more restrictive to get abortions in north carolina. if you're elected governor, what restrictions on abortion would you agree to sign. i'll start with you, mr. mccrory. >> none. >> all right. joining me now are elise hogue, i wonder why would the governor in that debate give such a clear answer, if this is what he was going to end up doing. what was he thinking back then? >> you know, i think he
is someone very close to top al qaeda leadership and was once osama bin laden's secretary. lastly, the group in yemen has been attacked quite aggressively by yemeni fources and saudi forces and american drones and therefore is looking for an opportunity for revenge. >> nbc's richard engel reporting in cairo. thank you. >>> joining to us continue this conversation is democratic senator from oregon, jeff markly. senator, good to have you here. obviously, as we have been talking about off the top of this hour it's the new normal of what is taking place in relation to the embassy closings. i want to play more from what we heard from richard haass this morning on "morning joe." >> this is not an exception. this is in some ways the inevitable result of a middle east that is increasely careening out of control and the problem is not strong governments but weak governments who are not in control of large things that go on within their boardses. >> so talking there about the weak governments. again, to remind everybody whether it comes to our embassies we rely heavily on the country's courtesy where
between the man who succeeded osama bin laden as the head of al qaeda central and a former personal aide to bin laden and who is also the head of al qaeda's satellite group al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. nbc news reports tonight that a third significant al qaeda operative was also a party to communication discussing the attack. that third al qaeda leader expressed the desire to blow himself up in an attack, something he has not been allowed to do in the past. today a state department spokesperson was asked about the striking coincidence that the government made the threat public immediately after russia granted asylum to edward snowden, the nsa leaker. >> couldn't it be argued that suddenly we're hearing about this potential threat to u.s. interests and u.s. persons and property at a time when there's a lot of debate and a lot of criticism of this program as well as other nsa types of surveillance? >> i can assure you that that in no way at all, period, 100% affects how we evaluate threat information coming in, specifically in terms of this threat. >> republican peter king offered a
to say about the state of al qaeda over the last year. >> today, al qaeda is on the run and osama bin laden is dead. for al qaeda a shell of its former self. groups like aqap must be dealt with. the united states is never going to retreat from the world. we don't get terrorized. >> senator, a moment ago you said that al qaeda is on the rise. you're not suggesting that al qaeda is stronger than it was pre-9/11? >> i'm saying they have metastasized in a way they may pose great threats throughout the middle east, that they can destabilize nations, that they can commit acts of terror literally anywhere and there's the perception throughout the middle east that there's no american leadership, that's no policy, and then the various actors in the region are accommodating to that reality. and when they believe that, then you are going to see extremist elements on the rise and clearly they are throughout the middle east. the action of closing these embassies shows that they're able to mount threats everywhere in the middle east against the united states of america and they are playing in ways
for osama bin laden. miss potress is still working on the third installment in that trilogy which is about u.s. surveillance of phone calls
of two men from yemen including one who was a driver for osama bin laden. miss poitras is still working on the third installment in that trilogy which is about u.s. surveillance of phone calls and e-mails and so on since 9/11. she posted a bit of that one last year on "the new york
into how president obama spent his time while u.s. special operations forces killed osama bin laden. it may surprise you. we want to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer, you're in "the situation room." >>> it's been a day of horrific bloodshed and chaos in egypt that began at dawn when troops moved against supporters of the ousted president, mohammed morsi, storming to large camps in cairo. there was teargas, clubs and gunfire as pitched battles broke out. the day ended with streets covered in blood. 278 people are reported dead. 235 civilians, 43 police officers. 1400 people have been wounded. egypt now in an official state of emergency. with cairo and other major cities under curfew. fighting has rage aid cross the country, and the united states, the obama administration, strongly condemning the violence, and warning against a return to emergency law. let's go straight to cairo, cnn's reza sayed was right in the middle of the action. what's the situation like now? >> well right now, wolf, it's eerily calm and quiet and that's because a curfew is
the global jihad foundation, obviously, shift more when osama bin laden took over and 9/11, but are we seeing now both disciples came together and sort of shared the same ideology? zawahiri, have we seen the shift towards a new approach to globallied had, or are we going to see -- global jihad? are we going to see more of cybersecurity issues, cyber wars that he's going to try and develop in al-qaeda, and now is it going to affect u.s. policy. >> want me? >> do you want to? >> yale, i'll go. we've -- yeah, i'll go. i think the big analytical mistake is to think that's not part of their global designs or doesn't assist them in waging global jihad. case in point in yemen, instituted a political platform under ansar al-sharia. and basically, this was there attempt to say that we can provide governance and basic services to you and that we can start, basically, you know, adopting parts of sort of, you know, the hezbollah or hamas model, we're going to ingrain ourselves in the committee and build up our own sort of governing model. the associated press recently came out with the head of the al-qae
years al qaeda core has been greatly diminished, not least because of the elimination of osama bin laden. what is also true is that al qaeda and affiliated organizations represent a continued threat to the united states. >> welcome back to "morning joe." it is 22 past the hour. >> 8:22 a.m. eastern time. >> that's when you're at your best, 8:22. that's where you peak. so nicole, it's so fascinating listening to the obama administration talking about the threat from al qaeda. they are balancing so many of the same things that the bush administration balanced. what's interesting is when they put america on high alert, you don't have everybody in the press going, are they doing this for political reasons. aren't you waiting for the first major newspaper to make that suggestion? i haven't heard it yet. >> it is interesting. i think this is a place where where else do we have representative king and jay carney saying exactly the same thing, singing from exactly the same song sheet. it gives us reinsurance about the truth of something incredibly dire and depressing, the threat of terrorism is
imprudent in crossing the border, going after osama bin laden. i don't think he's burdened by the history bush. i think he's burdened by his sense of responsibility here. in terms of the analogy you draw, it's slightly different here. it's a different region. we have now the threat of al qaeda that bill clinton -- at least in that instance, wasn't dealing with. you don't want to be in a position where in some way you empower the wrong people which is why, brian, rushing in there was not necessarily the smartest thing to do in the past. but now you have a situation where these weapons have been used. the president did draw a red line. >> there's no ambiguous wmd that we don't -- >> and listen to the president -- >> -- in afghanistan that in the end means nothing -- we've seen children dying -- >> yes, without question. seems to me just listening to the president this morning that he was signaling that he recognizes that as well. i expect they will take action, whether it's the no-fly zone that general wolffe is recommending or surgical strikes, we'll see. >> i understand this, the images a
of osama bin laden come of the president's reelection campaign and you may know her from her great work with the politics team at usa today and the managing editor of the american journalism review. next to rachel is jen pendry and who is not on your program. originally we were going to have an al jazeera reporter here but she has gone over to the mainstream and is now working for cnn, making her ineligible for the panel. so jen kindly agreed to step in and we appreciate that. she is the white house reporter for the huffington post and covers leadership on capitol hill. she joined huffington post a couple of years ago and spent years covering the legislative and executive wrenches of government for "rollcall." probably a walk in the park for her because she started covering the texas state legislature. again, stepping in for camille, so thank you for that. next to jen is john stanton who also has "rollcall" roots rate he is the chair of buzz feed here in washington. then smith, the editor described him as a reporter's reporter with being in his veins. he's a third-generation news man an
